issues, in many cases i believe it's related to the environment. and some of the issues that they're exposed to. and, so, i think it's critical that we start to look at people who are struggling in a more compassionate way. so, since i've been supervisor, one of the organizations that -- community-based organizations that i've been very impressed by is the west side community services. i think that the -- (applause) >> there are a lot of communities, communities of color. they still have stigma attached to that name, mental health. so, it's really incredible that these individuals in this agency that's run currently by dr. jones who does pretty incredible work in the community in the western addition.

to the department of the environment to look at neighborhood issue in district 11 that is something that has been challenging for four years as a supervisor. in my district we have many oversized vehicles. a lot of them are scattered throughout the neighborhood from pares and brazil to munich and moscow. okly we put signs up all over the neighborhood we would never be able to address the issue. these oversized vehicles are actually scavengers. people use the cars to collect a lot of refuse that they recycle. a lot of it is actually material that could go in the dump, but it's actually taken out and sorted for other materials that can be othersed. -- used. what it does is create a huge blight in my neighborhood. some of the grime is left behind by some of the material that's recycled and it's an environmental issue. it's also a small business issue. it's a small business issue because there are many people who actually survive in san francisco, actually scavaging for material. and it's not people going through bins, but actually people finding trash all over the city and using that to make a livin
